Bonesupport AB and Signus Medical LLC sign distribution agreement for the U.S. market

2007-01-29 -- The Swedish medical technology company, Bonesupport, in Lund, which develops synthetic, injectable ceramic bone substitute, has signed its first commercial distribution agreement in North America. The agreement with the American company Signus Medical LLC covers exclusive sales rights in ten key states and is an important breakthrough in the U.S. market.

The agreement is of strategic importance to BONESUPPORT with the imminent launch of the first product CERAMENT™|BONE VOID FILLER in the North American market. The product is used for filling bone voids in the skeleton during treatment of bone defects and osteoporotic fractures. The first delivery has already been shipped and will be used primarily for clinical marketing and demonstration of the CERAMENT™ concept.

− Signus Medical and the medical technology and segments which they focus on compliment Bonesupport well and will enable us to grow in the American market. With the coming U.S. launch of our first product, CERAMENT™|BONE VOID FILLER, we are entering a new and exciting phase with our first commercial agreement completed and our first sales invoiced, says Fredrik Lindberg, CEO at Bonesupport.

The American market is the worlds biggest and the agreement means that Bonesupport now has qualified access to ten key states with the potential for further expansion in the future.. CERAMENT™|BONE VOID FILLER will initially be used in the spine segment with other broader orthopaedic applications being added successively.

The market potential for the injectible bone substitute CERAMENT™ is large worldwide. The global orthopaedic market turns over billions of dollars annuallly and within five years it is estimated that the potential market for treatment of vertebral fractures will be valued at more than two billion dollars in the USA alone. Annual growth is projected to be about 50 percent.. CERAMENT™|BONE VOID FILLER will address the growing needs of doctors for a synthetic alternative for the treatment of bone defects and osteoporotic fractures.

Signus Medical LLC is a privately held, high growth medical technology company with its headquarters in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Founded on the principle of being a rapid response conduit to the spine market; flexibility and innovation are the cornerstones of success and direction for the future. They are constantly seeking out unique materials and products to provide superior solutions to address the challenges faced by today’s surgeons.

− Bonesupport’s CERAMENT™|BONE VOID FILLER is a fantastic addition to our product portfolio and will further enable Signus Medical’s continued expansion in the American market, says Thomas Hoghaug,CEO Signus Medical LLC. CERAMENT™ has all of the distinctive characteristics which we look for to allow for specific differentiation from other products on the market.
